I really hope they fix the colors and contrast of shadows. While this does look darker than Diablo III, it kinda looks "foggy", with washed out colors, and the "shadowy aspect" don't look as dark as I expected. Since this is still in development, I really hope this changes in the final product, plus allowing players to tweak those graphical aspects.

All in all, I'm super hyped for this game, although I did prefer their original concept for the so called "Project Fenrir" where the perspective would be 3rd person akin to Dark Souls.

      Game Director Joe Shely and Associate Game Director Joseph Piepiora discussed the new Codex of Power system, Lilith and Inarius, and the Battle Pass in the first Diablo IV Developer Update Livestream.
      Key Highlights
      The developers discussed the conflict between Lilith and Inarius and played cinematics that introduce both characters. A Battle Pass will be available in every Diablo IV Season. It will cost $10 USD and only offer cosmetics. The developers discussed Codex of Power, a new crafting mechanic, coming in Diablo IV, where players farm unique buffs and powers in dungeons and attach them to legendary gear. During the livestream, they showed off the Limited Collector's Box that's now available for pre-purchase. (Source)
      Welcome, Wanderer.
      Gaze into the flames, soak in their knowledge, for they prophesize a vision—our Diablo IV Developer Update Quarterly blogs will now take the form of our new Diablo IV Developer Update Livestream series. But before we begin, let’s take a look at how future livestreams will be structured and what type of content you can expect to take away from them: Each livestream will feature members of the Diablo IV development team—they’ll be illuminating elements of Diablo IV’s production and digging into the details behind the game’s systems, lore, answering questions from our community, and more. Following each livestream, we will publish a recap blog like this one with details on where to catch up on the livestream and a look at the content covered.
      During this livestream, we introduced the new Codex of Power system, talked about the story between Lilith and Inarius, gave you all the details around our Diablo IV pre-purchase editions, and held a Q&A session. Currently, our video on demand of the livestream is only available in English, but we will be adding additional localized videos on demand over the coming days.
      Now, grab a piping-hot beverage and prepare to catch up with game director Joe Shely and associate game director Joseph Piepiora.
      Enjoyed the livestream and want to gather around the fire with the development team again? Good, we cannot wait to highlight more details in the future. Once we are ready to share the date of our next Diablo IV Developer Update Livestream, we’ll announce it on our official Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts. Keep an eye out, and remember. . .
      Hail Lilith, Blessed Mother!
      -The Diablo IV Team
